There is information on this scattered widely around the wiki but
there's no doubt it's hard to find if you're approaching the question
from the standpoint of "How do I get source?" without knowing what
source, or why.

And by saying that, I am absolutely *not* saying that's a bad way to
ask the question!  In fact, I think the *idea* of getting the source
is just so powerful that we should make it drop-dead simple even for
people who have no idea exactly why they want it.  That idea, when you
combine it with the collaborative power of the community, is what
powers this entire project and indeed all of FOSS.
